I highly recommend Wayne at The Kruger Safari Co.
5/5

Wayne helped me book a 5-day safari at the Kapama River Lodge. He was extremely professional and responsive. And, he made the booking process easy. It is without hesitation that I recommend Wayne at The Kruger Safari Co.

I must also say that safari at Kapama River Lodge was outstanding. Five out of five stars. Our guides, Godsave and Penny, were exceptional. We were lucky to see all of the big five (multiple times) as well as several of the small five and ugly five.

Amazing Experience
5/5

We recently had an unforgettable safari with Kruger Safari Co. From the beginning Wayne simplified the process and made sure we had the safari that was right for us. On arrival Carol greeted us with staff and made sure we had everything we needed throughout our stay. I can't say enough about the staff at Kruger Safari Co. They are so welcoming, friendly, and attentive always there to make sure your needs are met. The food was exceptional for every meal. It was like dining three times a day at Michelin rated restaurants.
Victor our guide for the entirety of our 5-day, 4-night stay was delightful, knowledgeable, and passionate. Victor's expertise and understanding of the land, following tracks, and overall disposition made our time exceptional.

I cannot recommend Victor and the Kruger Safari Co highly enough for an unmatched safari that will leave you with cherished memories and a full heart to last a lifetime!

Excellent!
5/5

My wife and I, along with another couple, booked thru Wayne Barnes and The Kruger Safari Co. From the very start, throughout the trip, and even when we returned Wayne was constantly communicating with us about our travel and experience. My friend and I both work for Delta Air Lines and were looking for a once in a lifetime Safari and experience and the Greenfire Lodge and staff did not disappoint.
Wayne worked with us on several package options from the start and we finally settled on a 5 day / 4 night Greenfire Lodge experience. We arrived in Joburg two days early and Wayne arranged for our private transfer to and from Kruger for the four of us. Our pickup was at 6 am on Sunday, and Victor our driver arranged with Wayne was right on time and a great way to start our journey. We arrived as planned at the park entrance on Sunday afternoon and we met by another man named Victor who turned out to be our guide for all of our game drives. Our guide Victor was amazing! I'm sure all of them are great, but he was truly amazing and we felt we had known him for years and were sad to leave after a fantastic week with him showing us the game reserve.
Victor drove us to the main lodge, and the drive was as scenic as pictured online. We were there in February and the days were hot but not terrible and always a slight breeze. As we arrived at the lodge, we were met by Carol and the rest of the Greenfire staff. I can't say enough about how gracious and warm all of the staff were. Victor and the team carefully handled all of our bags (we now know not to pack as much as it's very casual and comfortable)! We had a nice welcome drink and were explained the detials of our week ahead. Lunch was to be served shortly after and we were escorted to our cabin. To our delight, the cabins were being outfitted with air conditioners as we were there and luckily both of our cabins had working AC units. This was a great surprise as we were not planning on AC units, only the fans in the rooms. The cabins are very nice. Better than the pictures show and all overlook the dried up riverbed where we saw numerous animals (Buffalo, elephants, monkeys, etc) right from our patio. After briefly unpacking, we went to the main lodge for lunch. Let me say that every meal, every one of them, was fantastic. We weren't expecting such a great meal for every meal and the service was second to none. It almost felt like we were at a Four Seasons resort for the week. That evening we went on our first game drive and saw many animals, including lions and elephants.
Everyday was the same, great meals, great game drives and great service. I could go on and on about how wonderful our experience was and i would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great safari to go with the Krugar Safari Co.

Thank you Wayne, Carol, the entire staff and Victor. You all truly made our the best ever!

Brilliant! Great value! Gave us everything we could have wished for and so much more!
5/5

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you Wayne and all involved at the Kruger Safari Company for making our first safari totally brilliant and unforgettable. Everything was perfectly organised, from the airport transfer and internal connections to the choice of venues - Hamilton's Tented Camp and the Train on the Bridge. The first was like stepping back to Colonial times, the second modern cutting-edge elegance. Both had the WOW factor plus excellent food (too much!) and the service in both places was exceptional - all the staff were so attentive and gracious.
Our guides, Mark and Sizwe, were incredibly knowledgeable. We learned so much and, yes, we saw the Big Five and so much more! Incredible memories - we'll never forget watching the baby hippo frolicking with its mother as we breakfasted by the river at Hamilton's or the evening when the lion and lioness decided to rest in the middle of the road just by our jeep. Breath-taking and incredible value!
We can't wait to return! Meanwhile we're telling all our friends you are definitely the "Go To" company for an unforgettable safari experience.

The Kruger Safari Co.is attentive, welcoming and professional!
5/5

We visited Kruger National Park in February 2024 and the itinerary was booked on the official website of The Kruger Safari Co. The company offered us a very wide range of options, which was something we were very happy with. We chose a 3 day Safari based on our financial budget and time schedule. during this trip we saw almost all the big 5 game except the leopard. But we were happy because it was something we couldn't experience in China and very African. The sad thing is that one of our mates accidentally lost his mobile phone during this trip. But to our surprise, the company's staff found our lost mobile phone in the almost wild environment of the national park, which really led us to marvel! Because we were prepared to never get our phones back. I can't help but admire the service and professionalism of the company's team! One thing that stood out to me during the trip was that our guide, during one of the afternoon safaris, I remember it was almost dark, but he found a tiny chameleon in the bushes. When we could not spot it despite his prompting, he stopped the car and very accurately and quickly found it and showed it to us. What marvellous eyesight that is! Kudos to him for his expertise. Overall, we were very happy with the trip and it is something that I would highly recommend and promote to my close friends. I hope more and more Chinese tourists can have the chance to visit Kruger National Park once and experience the African wildlife adventure.
There are two small suggestions, I hope the camp WIFI signal coverage is wider, at the same time, there is the possibility of Chinese-speaking tour guides, although I know Chinese is very difficult to learn, thank you!

Excellent, Funny, and Very Knowledgeable
5/5

When booking, the communication was easy even though the time difference was a challenge. Every step of the way to booking a lodge was answered with all the details I would need. There was not a question unanswered and I had full knowledge of what I was booking. The lodge was AMAZING and recommended by Wayne, the representative that helped me. It was more incredible in person that what the description was on their website. I highly recommend booking through them for your safari and any other excursions you may want to do. I also did a Johannesburg full day excursion and my tour guide was so much fun and knowledgeable. I HAD THE BEST TIME!!!! (solo traveler)

Wonderful time with great experiences on safari and very nice people
5/5

I spent 6 days in Tremisana in January. The shuttle from Johannesburg to Tremisana Lodge was excellent. And immediately after checking into the room, we went on our first game drive.
The whole team (driver, the lovely girls from the kitchen, reception, gardener etc.) were all very, very nice and always there if you needed anything. I was kindly given another room because I wasn't so happy in the first one. And the second room was beautiful with a great view. The change was no problem at all.
The food is super good and plentiful, the braii in the bush was exciting with a hyena at the barbecue. The game drives were great and the drivers so motivated. It was a lot of fun and I saw a lot of animals.
The days were excellently organised, as was the shuttle back to Johannesburg at the end.
I will definitely be coming back. It was a wonderful experience for me as a solo traveller and my first time in the Kruger Park. I also enjoyed staying a few more days at Tremisana Lodge and not travelling on straight away. You should take a few days to really get there.
Thanks to the whole Tremisana team! See you soon :-)

Really great an responsive service. I booked quite last minute, but they were able to get me exactly the Safari I wanted.

I had a lovely 3-day trip to the Nkhoro Bush Lodge. The lodge was beautiful and very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. They got us lots of great sightings!
